< Taric

Champion Background Strategy Skins & Trivia


  • Classic Skin
  • Emerald Taric
  • Armor of the Fifth Age Taric


  • Taric was designed by Brackhar.
  • Taric is voiced by Dennis Collins Johnson, who also voices  Gangplank and  Heimerdinger.
  • Taric's name most likely originates from the Arabian name "طارق/Tariq", which means "The striker." A commonly used Quranic idiom of tariq also relates it to brilliant stars, furthering its connection to him as a character.
  • Taric is likely left handed, as that is the hand that wields his hammer (though some of his splash art portrays him holding it in his right).
  • The in-game description for  Taric's  Gemcraft is a reference to Diablo 2's gem socketing.
  •  Taric's  Gemcraft is a likely reference to the popular Tower Defense game series GemCraft.
  • The  Taric  shield design is quite similar to which has a turret in the introduction image of Summoner's Rift.


  • Taric's joke is a reference to the 80's cartoon "Jem" intro.
  • In Polish version, his /joke is a double entendre, as the polish word for "gems" is also a word used for "testicles". In literal translation, the joke is "Gems? You want to see my... gems?".


Armor of the 5th Age Taric

  • It is a reference to the World of Warcraft Tier 5 Paladin Armor. The player Fanatik photo-shopped the pink-tinged suit, including such things as the leg warmers, a furry purse, and pink sun-glasses.[1]
  • The Chinese Art for Emerald Taric and Armor of the Fifth Age Taric shows multiple seals attached to his armor, and hammer, similar in appearance to seals attached to armor and weapons worn by space marines in the Warhammer 40,000 franchise.

Bloodstone Taric

  • Taric can be seen on the "Taric's Tropical Tan" bottle of the Surfer Singed skin.
  • He shares this theme with  Lissandra.
